Brighter Ears provides hearing tests for children aged 4 and above. We believe it is crucial for all children to have a hearing test before starting primary school. If your child exhibits signs of hearing loss, such as difficulty concentrating, not responding when called, speaking loudly, pronunciation difficulties, or academic performance lagging behind, it is important to have a hearing test. Early identification and intervention can greatly support their overall development and well-being.

At Brighter Ears, we understand that each child is unique, and their hearing test will be tailored to their individual capabilities. During the assessment, we will carefully examine the child's ears and select the most suitable testing method for them.

For younger children, we often use Play Audiometry, which transforms the test into an interactive game. This approach keeps the child engaged and cooperative throughout the assessment. Through playful activities, we can evaluate their hearing abilities and identify any potential concerns.

For older children who can follow instructions, we may conduct Pure-tone Audiometry. In this test, the child wears headphones and listens for different tones or beeps. They will be instructed to press a button or raise their hand when they hear the sound. This helps us determine their hearing thresholds across various frequencies.

Depending on the child's abilities and tolerance, we may also incorporate additional tests such as speech testing and tympanometry. Speech testing assesses their ability to understand and repeat words, while tympanometry measures the movement of the eardrum in response to changes in air pressure. These tests provide us with a more comprehensive understanding of the child's hearing health.

Our aim is to create a comfortable and child-friendly environment during the assessment, ensuring that your child feels at ease throughout the process. We will adapt our testing methods to suit their needs and make the experience as positive as possible.

At Brighter Ears, we prioritize the well-being of your child and understand the importance of early intervention and support when it comes to their hearing health. Contact us today to schedule a hearing test for your child and take a proactive step towards ensuring their optimal hearing abilities.
